The Hail Holy Queen

 Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

 V.  Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.

R.  That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

 Let us pray:     O God, whose only-begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant, we beseech Thee, that meditating upon these mysteries in the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may both imitate what they contain, and obtain what they promise. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.

 For the Holy Souls in Purgatory

 V.    Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord

R.    And let perpetual light shine upon them.

V:    May they rest in peace.

R.   Amen.

           and…

 All:  May the souls of the faithful departed + through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

(Make the Sign of the Cross + at this point.)
